Day 562: It Can Be Easy Being Green

Country Home presents the top 10 Green Places in America.  I’ve lived in two of them, Champaign-Urbana, IL and Madison, WI.  And if C-U can do something, any city can.  From greenoptions.com:

 Country Home magazine has released its 2007 list of Best Green Places in America, and Burlington, Vermont has taken top honors.  Cited for its many unique green attributes, Burlington was noted for its advanced community compost facility and it’s Eco Info Project.

Country Home examined 24 data metrics in five major categories to determine which of 379 metro areas are best for those wanting to live a green life. The study collected data on traits such as air and watershed quality, mass transit use, energy use, organic food producers, farmers markets, and number of green-certified buildings.

Rounding out the top ten were–
2. Ithaca, NY
3. Corvallis, OR
4. Springfield, MA
5. Wenatchee, WA
6. Charlottesville, VA
7. Boulder, CO
8. Madison, WI
9. Binghamton, NY
10. Champaign-Urbana, IL

The study is featured in Country Home’s green April issue, which hit newsstands yesterday.
